Corporal Kelsey De Santis’ Dream Date Accompanies Her to Marine Corps Birthday Ball
The 236th Marine Corps Ball in Virginia set the scene for one lucky woman to have the date of her dreams. 23-year old Corporal Kelsey De Santis asked Justin Timberlake to accompany her to the event through a video she posted on YouTube.
Last Saturday evening marked the night of the big event, and it looks like things could have not turned out any better for the Corporal and her date.
J.T. took to his own blog www.justintimberlake.com to write about the evening.
The singer/ actor started by saying his reasons for addressing his ‘friends, family and fans’ was to write about, “An event that turned out to be one of the most moving evenings I’ve ever had.” Justin continued to voice his support for the Armed Forces, and his thankfulness to those who serve.
Justin Timberlake had the opportunity to sit down and get to know Corporal Kelsey De Santis a little better.
“She talked about her mixed martial arts training, with a passion, a discipline and respect. It reminded me of how I hear my favorite athlete talk about their sport, or how I hear my favorite among my peers in music and film talk about their craft,” Timberlake explained.
The Corporal’s own blog www.kelseydesantis.com has been temporarily down due to the overwhelming amount of page views. Kelsey De Santis not only posted on her blog, she also appeared on the Morning Show to dish the details.
When asked what the sweetest moment of the evening was Kelsey remarked, “At the end of the evening he had a smile on his face, you could see he genuinely cared.”
